Getting Well Soon - PPA304, GDP#039






Think I'll send this card to myself as I am battling a head cold.....runny nose, watery eyes, endless sneezing.....yep the real deal.  I was really down for the count yesterday but fortunately Hey Hey was home to entertain my little germ carrier - who happened to have a cold last week!  So I sat wrapped up by the fire and was entertained all afternoon watching their wild games of Slap Jack, Matchbox car races and wrestling matches.  During a break for refreshments Miss E brought me a snack and asked "Amma are you just old or are you old old like Hey Hey?"

Ouch!  Guess I'll go with just old........

Here's that old old Hey Hey somehow managing to coach Emma's soccer team made up of three and four year olds! 






Hope you play along with our sketch at Pals Paper Arts this week!  I used Swirly Bird to create the fun kites using Pear Pizzazz, Sweet Sugarplum and Dapper Denim inks.  The DSP is Fruit Stand and the sentiment from Delightful Dozen.




Global Design Project has a Get Well Theme this week.

Aw, sorry you are feeling old old and sick sick, Linda! This card cheered me up and I only have allergies! LOVE it! Can't wait for my own Swirly Bird to come....I feel a case of your fun card coming on!

Sounds like you need that card! At least you have good care givers. :) Your card is adorable and I wondered where the kites came from. They are so cute! This card should make you feel better soon, I hope so anyway!

Awesome card!!! Love the way that your kit tail turns into the real string at the bottom of the panel. Perfect colors and design! Feel better soon!

Darling card! I love the kites, and also love that DSP, I think I have to have it. One tip, zinc drops, get Cold Eze, the store brands are horrible, but they will get rid of your cold quick.

Linda this is a perfect cold card...for the record... I heard you were suppose to go outside and get lots of fresh air...so the kite thing works...right?

Old, old hey hey looks like he's enjoying that very thing..right? Hugs

Love your card! I have seen so many cards with the swirly stamps and not as many with the kites, so I'm glad to find yours. I hope you are feeling better soon!

Love the whimsy of the kites Linda and what a clever interpretation of the circle. You are definitely a master loop creator! Hope you are on the mend soon.

It's kind of appropriate that our theme was "Get Well" Linda, although we should be sending you this card by the sounds. Love your use of the Swirly Bird set. I find this card very uplifting (sorry, I had to say it!). Hope you are feeling better soon and thanks for playing at Global Design Project.

Totally love this Linda. Love that you made your own 'swirly bird' with the twine. So perfect! Thanks so much for sharing your talents and joining in with this week's Global Design Project!

Cheer up my friend. Everyone seems old to a three year old! Sorry you are feeling under the weather. This card will cheer you up though. I have it on good authority that it was made with lots of love!
